Shakespeare in Love
Recently I was invited to a group caricature exhibition that's going to be held in July in Seoul, South Korea. I feel very grateful for this opportunity as my work is going to be exhibited amongst oworks of the top caricaturists in the world!
The theme chosen for the exhibition was "Oscar Winning" movie poster and I chose "Shakespeare in Love". I decided to emphasize the role of Elizabeth I in the developement of theatre and at the same time to lessen the importance of the two main characters who would normally take the main spot in any of the "Shakespear in Love" posters. I thought that their relationship on screen was not exploited enough. I was not captivated by their love. That's why I turned them into puppets. Elizabeth's puppets - since they both acted in a play that she sponsored and encouraged.
